If I Forget Reviews

This is the play of the season so far. I won't soon forget it.
Jeremy Gerard, Deadline
Superbly acted, impeccably directed and engrossing from first minute to last...this play rings with stunning emotional truth.
Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
Critics' Pick! Passionate and provoking.

Summary

From Steven Levenson, acclaimed writer of Roundabout’s The Language of Trees and The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin, comes If I Forget , a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can’t avoid and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.

In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father's 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself.
